Dell Chromebook 13 review: Chrome OS without compromise


Dell's Chromebook 13 costs a little more than the competition, but for that extra money, you get: hardware that feels like it's from a much more expensive machine, excellent performance, fantastic battery life and one of the best screens you'll find on...

Solid, attractive hardware and design ; One of the best screens you can find on a Chromebook ; Outstanding battery life ; Great backlit keyboard and trackpad ; Excellent performance

Chrome OS isn't for everyone ; More expensive than most other Chromebooks

It's a good time to be in the market for a Chromebook. That's because laptops like Dell's newest model go a long way toward dispelling the notion that Chromebooks are cheap, compromised machines that don't have the hardware or software to cut it as...

Dell Chromebook 13 review: Carbon fiber and extra-long battery life make it a class act


The Dell Chromebook 13 introduces a new adjective to its ecosystem: classy. Specifically, it fulfills a longstanding need for a professional-grade machine that's portable, productive, and built with high-quality materials.

Long 7-hour battery life ; Durable, classy-looking carbon fiber shell ; Good performance

Slender chassis means fewer ports

The Dell Chromebook 13's carbon-fiber shell and extra-long battery life fulfill a longstanding need for a professional-grade machine that’s portable, productive, and built with high-quality materials. For professionals and Chromebook aficionados, it’s...

Review: Dell Chromebook 13


After using close to a dozen different models, I've come to the conclusion that there is no such thing as the perfect Chromebook. There is always something missing, always something that could be better. Even when there isn't, as in the case of Dell's...

Light, solid construction and excellent battery life. High-res screen is bright with great viewing angles. The variety of configurations means you can tailor the Dell to suit your needs

Extra 'business' features are useless if your business doesn't use them. High end models cost as much or more than more capable Windows notebooks

The Dell comes as close to the ideal Chromebook as anything I’ve tested. The catch is that you’ll pay for it. It’s probably best compared directly to the only Chromebook that’s more powerful and pricier—the Pixel. If you want a high-end Chromebook and...

Dell teams with Google for a pro-level Chromebook 13 (hands-on)


This high-design Chrome OS system can cost as much as a premium laptop, and takes aim at small businesses and big IT departments.

Dell Chromebook 13: Outstanding value for the build quality


Buy it if you want a well-built Chromebook for all-day use, but spend the extra money for at least 4GB of memory, if not a faster processor.

Excellent build quality ; All-day battery life ; Crisp, clear full HD display ; Loud stereo speakers

ChromeOS scaling can make some elements small ; Same performance can be had for less money ; A tad heavy

Dell Chromebook 13 3380 review: Robust build and good battery life, but beware the weight


We first looked at the Dell Chromebook 13 back in late 2015, praising its build quality and full-HD display, but feeling it was a bit heavy at 1.46kg (3.23lbs).

Solid build quality ; 6th-gen Intel Celeron and Core i3 CPUs ; Touchscreen option available ; Good battery life

Relatively bulky and heavy ; Moderate screen resolution ; Not a convertible design

Dell Chromebook 13 review


Finally, a solid mid-range Chromebook here to save us from a seemingly endless line of cheap choices.

Great screen ; Glass trackpad, backlit keyboard ; Full-day battery life ; Lots of spec choices

A little heavy ; Mediocre speakers ; Higher models can get pricey ; Boring design

For anyone who wants to use a Chromebook on a regular basis, and values getting extra performance and hardware quality at an added price, Dell has made the Chromebook for you. It offers solid performance and a high-resolution display, while also...

Dell Chromebook 13


Dell's take on the Chromebook focuses on business and education, but that doesn't mean that the rest of us can't enjoy it, too. Just see if you can stomach the price.

A great Chromebook – but it can’t justify the price.
